LSU took it in the ass from the legislature this year. They killed the bill to elimate the 12% that TAF could control limiting the amount of funds that LSU can raise for athletics. Texas A&M just raised ticket prices STORY LINK a whopping 41%!! LSU needs to take note from our hated rival to the West and do the same. Jack the face value of the tickets up to $50 for all tickets & $75 for all lower bowl seats between the 30s. Hell, jack it up to $75 & $100 respectively! Get the money where you can get it & get it now. Quit screwing around. Now, this will obviously raise a furor. This is why we need to employ a better PR director than we have toi make sure LSU properly pitches this to the fans. Explain that the funds are essential to the future of LSU athletics. Explain that NONE of it is tax deductible because the legislature will not allow TAF to collect those additional funds. Hopefully this will get enough fans to realize that they will have to pay one way or another. They will then realize that tax deductions & priority points make a lot more sense than paying all that cash direct to the ticket office where the funds will be sitting idle & lathargic with benefits not coming to fruition for years. Many will cry & many will even cancel their tickets. Well, I will be right there to scoop up those seats because I am willing to pay! I will be accompanied by many like me. Death Valley will still sell out. And LSU facilities will at least be on the road to improvement.
